Wall Drawing #565 by Sol LeWitt

When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art. This kind of art is not theoretical or illustrative of theories; it is intuitive, it is involved with all types of mental processes and it is purposeless…Conceptual art is not necessarily logical. The logic of a piece or series of pieces is a device that is used at times, only to be ruined.
